I am a freelance writer and editor, located in Livingston, Montana.
I started blogging in this space in late 2002.
I write about sustainability and community, food and gardens, making things and grief.
I also work professionally as a technical writer, and teach technical writing at Montana State University. I hold degrees in creative writing from Beloit College, the University of California at Davis, and the University of Utah.
I’m the author of Place Last Seen (Picador, 2000), and have published essays in publications including Dark Mountain, Terrain, and Bookslut. My essay “My Inner Child” was chosen for the Best Food Writing of 2010.
